Nouveau Réalisme Necklace

Gold vermeil



Working in monochromatic ultramarine, Klein sought to appropriate images of reality, namely the sky and sea, to evoke the infinite and immaterial. Set with lapis lazuli, flat on one side and three dimensional on the other, the Nouveau Realisme pendant draws upon ancient associations of Lapis’ depth with that of a midnight sky.

Nouveau Réalisme is thoughtfully crafted in your choice of sterling silver 925 or 18k gold vermeil, inset with lapis lazuli. The pendant, measuring 28mm across and 8mm thick, inset with a lapis stone measuring 22mm across, is elegantly balanced upon a 50cm long and 1mm thick box chain.
Please note, all stones are natural gemstones and will present variations in colour and pattern.

All of the materials that we use in our jewellery are ethically and sustainably sourced using Fair Mined certified gold and predominantly recycled silver. 
The Nouveau Réalisme necklaces are cast and assembled in Thailand by a community of artisans from our partner factory, Boma. The gold vermeil option is finished in the UK by our plating specialist, D&M. Read more about the story behind our pieces and their makers here.
